  • Great little museum. Gives great detail of the history on the river. Easy to understand.
  • Chicago is very beautiful. It is better to visit in summer and enjoy city walk. There are many activities to enjoy like visiting to tallest tower..museum etc. Howere look around go little inside for parking your 4 wheeler. One can get it at cheap price . parking near bean or garden is expensive. Parking near tallest tower is cheap.
